Denim patches

Next time you shorten a pair of jeans don't just throw the spare denim away.  Cut it into patches and keep them to sew on jeans.  These little hearts hide a bleach stain.  Don't forget to run around the edge of the patch with 'fray stop' before you sew it on.

Upcycled envelope

I have made a simple box card from plain white card.  I used an upcycled envelope to add a base layer of blue. Then I used up some tiny snips and scraps of paper to cut the cats.

For a different card I made an ordinary plain white envelope look a bit special with the addition of a die cut flower and some acryllic bling

Embellished coffee tins

I have in my craft stash a number of large catering size coffee tins which are crying out for a makeover.  Tomorrow I am planning to paint and decoupage them all and use them as craft caddies. They will come in very handy for storing odds and ends of my many craft supplies and I am wondering how useful they will be for storing gardening implements.  I have tons of string,  seeds, pegs and labels that would look much neater if they were somehow contained..  I will post a few photo's in a day or two

Upcycled shirts

I have just finished sewing this memory cushion.  I have made it for a friend from her late husbands shirts.

A new project

Yesterday I was given two glass lamps.  I reckon they would make beautiful 'gazing balls'.... google it if you aren't sure what that is.  I plan to mosaic these and cover the base of each one with cement so they look as though they are on a plinth.
